Sorry for the long period of downtime. It was caused by two things:
- My previous host, Kaizen Garden, apparently went poof with no warning. (That was why the whole website was down for awhile.)
- I got most of the site back up on its new home, NearlyFreeSpeech.net, but got frustrated when I tried to restore the blog, so I just left it renamed out of sight until I next felt like making a run at it.
That was today. I finally sat down and got it all working, and fully upgraded WordPress while I was at it. The blog is back, everyone! Yay!
You will see some missing images. Apparently the backups I had only covered the WordPress database, not anything I’d uploaded as an attachment—those I only have through 2008. Oops.
Some of them I’ll be able to reconstruct. Fortunately I had good alt text on at least some of them, so I should be able to figure out what was there, and you should be able to make do in the meantime. And some of the images are definitely higher priority than others—the trigonometry figures, for example, will be among the first to come back.
So, please bear with me—the long recovery of this blog isn’t quite done yet. But this is progress.
